It was our third time to take QM2. We took QM2 last year and were disappointed. But, we still wanted to give her a second chance, especially knowing that there was a dry port refurbishment. Unfortunately, she disappointed us one more ... Read more

Background: This is our 22nd cruise and first on Cunard. The ship had just come out of a 3 week dry dock where most everything that we could use was replaced/updated. Could not expect a ship to look any better. I think that my ... Read more

The opportunity to sail on the Queen Mary 2 was the appeal. We sailed from New York to Halifax, stopped in Boston, then back to New York. The cruise was thoroughly enjoyable. The QM2 was just remastered and I was wondering if the ... Read more

Embarkation was a nightmare. Waited well over an hour in a hot terminal with minimal attention and supervision by Cunard who only cared about their status customers. The published itinerary was misleading; stated that we would be in ... Read more

This cruise was a big disappointment. I am a travel agent and have been on several cruise lines and this was my worst experience. I chose this cruise line because I liked the short itinerary and the high level of service they advertise. ... Read more

This was my last voyage before the dry dock coming after the WC, so I hope to write a comparison next year - as we have booked the same class and the exact same trip - Quebec to NYC. I hope this review helps give a few tidbits and ... Read more

We had previously cruised on Princess Cruise Line, and loved every minute! Surprisingly, Cunard, showed itself to be a step down. Certainly, not something we anticipated. Cabin: Our balcony stateroom was very comfortable, clean, ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the QM2, the first being a TA in 2009. I must say that the liner looks pretty much the same way as it did in 2009 which was a relief to us as we love this liner! We flew into NYC a few days prior to re-visit ... Read more

First cruise ever and I was awestruck. Embarkation was very speedy - taxi to stateroom in 20 minutes; luggage arrived in the next 20. Room was very clean and spacious enough - lots of closet space and hangers. Only electrical outlet is ... Read more

Check in went fast because as a ''Grills'' passenger I got to bypass the “steerage” line – non Grill, non-Platinum or Diamond passengers – which was quite long. Once on board the stewards are now in the hallway to ... Read more

Just returned from five nights on the QM2. It was our first time on a cruise ship and my reaction to the experience is "so-so". The ship is certainly grand, and there were many activities planned. It is definitely aimed at a more mature ... Read more
